She Kissed My Wookiee (G)


By : DarthIshtar

Archived on: Monday, November 22, 2004

Summary:
Before Han and Leia can become man and wife, she has one confession to make.

"I swear, it was the heat of the moment."

She was lucky he was too decent to hit a woman because he had the strongest urge to smack her upside the head for this.

"Heat of the moment," Han repeated. "Heat of the moment? Where were you that gets that hot? The Jundland Wastes?"

A towel came flying at top speed towards his head, but his reflexes were quicker and he parried it. A moment later, Leia emerged from the ?fresher, looking very grumpy.

"As a matter of fact,? she proclaimed, ?yes!"

For a long moment, he was simply unable to speak and for that, she was both thanking her lucky supernovas and enjoying herself a lot, from the look on her face. She simply didn?t understand that it was very hard to speak when you were dumbstruck by perfect beauty.

Or at least, he thought that's what that bemused smirk beneath the thin veil draped over her head meant. She sauntered closer, the simple, sleeveless white gown that she had borrowed from Mon Mothma swaying slightly with the movement of her hips.

"Want a closer look?" she purred.

"I don't know," he said dubiously. "Is it going to shed on me?"

She threw up her hands in exasperation. "You're not going to let this go, are you?"

"You kissed my Wookiee!" he shot back.

"It was your idea!"

She plopped unceremoniously onto the nearest repulsorchair, her narrow chin buried in the palm of her hand as she melted the transparisteel with the force of her glare.

"I guess this is why seeing the bride before the ceremony is considered bad luck," she surmised grumpily.

"You said you had something to tell me," he reminded. "This is all your doing."

Her head was shaking in undisguised disgust now. "I tell you I'm related to your best friend," she reminded, "the daughter of our thankfully-deceased worst enemy, and you're still harping on this?"

"It was my Wookiee!"

"It was the day we figured out a way to get me into Jabba's palace and it was thanks to Chewie's idea," she explained. "Even Lando could have kissed the big fuzzball."

"Lando will kiss anything if it stands still for half a second," he grumbled. "Is he another of your conquests?"

"Not with a ten-meter stunstick," she spat and he was thoroughly relieved to find he believed her.

He bent over, retrieved his boots and focused his anger on yanking them onto his feet. Unfortunately, there was a lot more anger than boot leather, so when he straightened, there was one more question to be asked.

"Who's the better kisser?"

She had apparently decided to enjoy this while he was suffering his boots. Her tongue ran a slow circuit around her lips, making him shudder with envy and anticipation. Envy that there was the taste of something else's lips there and anticipation of erasing it with the long night ahead of them.

She kissed my Wookiee. When's my turn?

"You have nothing to worry about, nerfherder," she declared before turning on her heel and gliding from the room.


"What's wrong?" Luke murmured as she approached. "I haven't seen Han this worked up since Threepio revealed his divine prerogative."

"I kissed his Wookiee," she explained offhandedly. "He's not too happy about it."

"You kissed Chewie?" he chuckled. "I'm sorry I missed that."

"You didn't miss much," she snorted. "It was one second long in the middle of the Tatooine desert and we were both laughing too hard to have felt anything."

"Does he know that?"

"If he gets his scruffy-looking head on straight, he'll know," she assured him.

"When do you think that'll happen?"

When Eol Sha's lava pits freeze over.

"As soon as he remembers that it's not his Wookiee that I'll be kissing for the rest of my life," she assured him with a shrug that suggested that she didn?t believe it would happen in her lifetime.

His arm wrapped gently around her shoulders as he steered her towards the front of the room. "I'm not going to lecture you," he whispered, "but I want you to promise me you'll be happy."

Her eyes met her intended's across a few meters, and saw that the annoyance and brashness had finally dissolved behind the familiarly lopsided grin.

"You have nothing to worry about, brother dearest."

The ceremony would be simple?the no-frills one that was typical of Corellia--instead of the beautifully elaborate one that Leia had been taught to hope for since she was old enough to know what a wedding was.

Han had offered to change that, but she had insisted on keeping it simple and heartfelt.

"Who gives this woman in marriage?" Ackbar began as they reached their places.

Luke lifted the veil just far enough to let his lips linger on her cheek for a moment, then lowered it and turned back.

"I do."

He released her shoulder, then guided her forward so she could take Han's hand.

"Do you, Leia, take this man to be your lawfully wedded husband, forsaking all others, to cherish and to keep, in peace and in turmoil, in sickness and in health, til death parts you?"

"I do," she managed to choke past the lump in her throat.

His lopsided smile turned into a triumphant grin as he repeated the vows and his hand tightened around hers.

"By the power given me as Supreme Commander of the Alliance Fleet, I pronounce you husband and wife. You may kiss the bride."

His hands threw back the veil as he leaned in for their first married kiss, then he hesitated and drew back.

"Are you sure you don't want one more wild fling with the walking carpet?"

She closed the space between them quickly, obliterating that taunt with the heat of her lips.

"Don't worry," she said when they broke away, breathing hard. "I prefer scruffy-looking to hairball-hacking now and forever."

This was very, very good. I thought Han's comment about Lando was hilarious. The only possible way this could have been better would be if Chewie was in it. Either way, great job.

This story just makes me wonder--how many times in how many different places by how many different people have Han and Leia been married?

Very well written though.

Martyn, methinks I did it about 50 times over the years... This one is my favorite, though, because it's not entirely serious.

I appreciate all the positive feedback on the cover art. I had fun making it for Ishy.

Ah. I was beginning to wonder if they'd forgotten to put the AU title on there. Kudos to Arin for taking my twisted ideas for cover art, making them make sense, then making them reality.

LOL That was one of the many pieces of repartee I enjoyed.

And the cover art was spot on.
Thanks for a welcome bit of levity.

Hello!!!!!

It was hilarious, funny and just, well...

LOL!

I loved it, very enjoyable, but one comment is maybe, Han should have talked with chewbacca, or chewie at least in the story. (but that's my opinion).

Also, wouldn't Han be a little... over dramatic maybe? I don't know. I don't really know the character well, (I'm more of a fan of P/A), but oh well.

Loved it though.

It looks like you wrote it in five minutes. It has little direction, and it's like you're being slapped directly in a scene, and you're supposed to care what they are talking about. No lead up, or direction of character. One of your weakest pieces by far for such obvious little effort.

It's funny...

But(and pardon me)

Why does she feel the need to confess? A grateful peck shouldn't be remembered guiltily, let alone confessed right before a wedding. The idea that she needs to 'confess' what she claims was an innocent, grateful act, as though there was something sexual about it, just...

ICK! ICK! ICK!

I'm confused I guess.

Why would she need to confess that to begin with? And why would Han care?

cairo's Comments:

I'm not quite sure I understand what's going on here. I know that this is a humor piece and has an "AU" designation, but...it just seems so contrived. If my boyfriend was sitting in carbonite somewhere and his best friend found a way to get him out, and I kissed this best friend in a platonic way out of happiness and gratitude, I don't think my boyfriend would care. In fact, I don't think it would even occur to me (or any other woman) to mention it, especially right before getting married.

The point is, I just can't see two grown adults having this conversation, especially Han and Leia, even in a humorous AU piece. A similar piece about something Han or Leia might actually get upset about may have been more effective.

Your writing in and of itself is pretty good. I think you had the right idea with the banter between Han and Leia, but with the motivation of kissing a Wookiee behind it, the dialogue fizzled when it could've sizzled.

That was a very entertaining read! It just felt like Star Wars. Nice job. You successfully captured the emotion and humor of the original trilogy. :)

Hmmmm...

This is supposed to be a humour piece, right?

Aside from feeling like I need a long shower, my one complaint might be the rather uninspiring earth-based wedding. That sapped the Star Wars out of it.

Interesting piece, but I don't think Han would call Chewbacca "My Wookie." That was just bugging me the whole time I was reading it.

What I meant was that both Dave Wolverton and I think its Poul Davis or something like that have married Han and Leia. (It was a junior novel or something.) And I'm not immune to it myself--I've married a bunch of the X-wing pilots several times. (I mean, I married them to their spouses--not that *I* married them...:-P) Still a fun story, though.

I try and read this every once in a while, and I thought, "Well, maybe I should leave a note while I'm at it!"

This is one of my favorite fics...it's just so funny! I love the simple wedding, Han's reaction to Leia kissing Chewie, and Han calling Chewie "his" Wookiee. It's perfect!
